Forum: GratefulDead Subject: Re: Embalming the Dead - Taping, Trading, and Collecting the Aura of the Grateful Dead

There is a really nice section on the discovery of the Betty Boards and an explanation from Cantor herself of the techniques she employed to make her mixes. I love the whole part about how this new batch of extremely high quality tapes was spread with the intention of breaking the patterns of trading hierarchies. This history lesson is really making me appreciate the ease with which I can listen to anything I want online at the click of a button.

Sometimes I wish I didn't have so much access so that I would just get to know a single show really well instead of hopping around all the time. It's just so hard to listen to only a few recordings when who knows... there could be something better out there... !
